Almost every homeowner has woken up one morning to have to wash the egg off a house.
This is usually because some kids have played a prank on them the night before and thrown eggs at the side of their home. Usually, this is done to get someone back for some perceived wrongdoing.
Unfortunately, the egg starts to break down house paint right away, so if you wind up repainting, the prankster has probably gotten more than their pound of flesh. However,
there are ways to wash the egg off a house before it does enough damage to require repainting. Here are four:
Property crime is one of the most common form of crime across Australia. This maybe related to the destruction and damage of homes, businesses and land as well as household burglary and vehicle theft.

On the other hand, throwing of eggs on properties can be a serious dilemma. For an instance, every school year, a lot of pranks do happen. This is one of the nightmares, a lot of school cleaners are forced to face. Most of the pranks are quite petty and forgivable. Some are messy and can definitely make the lives of cleaning staff and the teachers to be quite a challenge.
Egg Stains in School Walls
Perhaps one of the most common reasons why schools seek professional cleaning services is the removal of ugly egg stains from render, bricks and concrete walls. These stains are really causing too much stress and nightmares for the cleaning staff. The egg yolk is really runny and can seep into tiny crevices and cracks. When school year ends, most of the time, the weather is a bit warmer. Leaving all those eggs being thrown away buy students have experienced being under the sun. Eventually, the eggs will quickly go dry, making it sticky like glue. Eventually, the egg will begin to emit Rotten egg with sulphur like smell.

1. Water and white vinegar: Mix one part white vinegar with one part warm water. Soak a towel in the solution. Next, wrap the wet towel around a piece of cardboard and put the towel and cardboard against the stain. Prop the top of a ladder or similar object against the cardboard and let it set for about 15 to 20 minutes. After taking the towel away, rinse the area with a hose to wash the egg off.
2. Water and Laundry Detergent: Mix water with a powdered enzyme detergent like Arm & Hammer to form a thick paste. Use about a ¼ cup of detergent mixed with a little water, which should be enough to cover the average egged area. Apply the paste and let it set about 15 minutes and wash the egg off the area with a hose.
3. Spray-on Laundry Remover doesn’t do a bad job to wash the egg off. Wet the area thoroughly first, and then spray on the spot remover. Let the remover work for about 15 minutes and then wipe off with a damp cloth.
